A mother and daughter who dressed up as princesses in anticipation of their trip to Disneyland were turned away at the gates…  For looking too much like princesses.

‘I thought they were playing a joke on me because it was April Fool’s Day at first’, said Miss Narula (pictured with her daughter, above.)

‘But I spoke to a manager and she said they were concerned children would think I worked there and wanted to have their picture with me.

‘I didn’t even have any make-up on and didn’t look anything like the characters in the park, it wasn’t like I was wearing a big Mickey Mouse outfit, it was just a dress.

‘How can they possibly say I looked too much like a princess? I was wearing a hideous wedding dress I bought from Oxfam for £20.’

Mention the term ‘hedge fund trader’ and everybody bristles.

Greedy.  Immoral.  Money-grubbing gits.

But did you know that a certain hedge fund trader has also been rated as the most generous, charity-giving person in Britain?

Step forward Christopher Coopher-Hohn.

This guy has topped the Giving List for the last three years running – and with good reason.  He’s donated a whopping £531.2 million to the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the charity he and his wife help run.  That means he’s donated more than six times his personal wealth to a good cause!

The news comes around as The Sunday Times reveals its Top 10 Most Generous Britains.

The paper ranks the rich on the proportion of their total wealth given to charitable causes in one year, rather than looking solely at the size of donation.  And it’s packed with surprises!

Did you know that the guy behind Kwik Save, Albert Gubay, has donated 470m to charity?

Did you also know that Uma Thurman and her husband Arpad Busson are fifth in the list, having given £65.1 million to helping poor and abused children?

The list in full is as follows:

  1. Christopher Cooper-Hohn
  2. Albert Gubay
  3. Bart Becht
  4. Anurag Dikshit
  5. Arpad Busson & Uma Thurman
  6. Lord Sainsbury
  7. Johan Eliasch
  8. Sir Terence Conran
  9. Sir Elton John
  10. Bob Edmiston

Good going, guys!  Keep up the good work!

Johnny Depp “Best Looking Man in America” April 23, 2010

Lad’s website Esquire recently recruited almost 10,000 US women and quizzed them on everything from their politics, finances, and sex lives.  Then they put it all together in a pretty chart!

Among the highlights are:

Over a third of women interviewed admitted to having some form of plastic surgery

42% of them have been to a strip club, and 45% of them pray (maybe 3% were just “passing through”?)

Only 57% practice safe sex.

When asked for the “best looking man in America”, Johnny Depp came out top with 29% of the vote.

… Barack Obama and Zac Efron were tied in last place.

Nearly a third of respondents stated it was okay for women to use their sexuality in the workplace.

And 5% of women, when asked for what type of gift they would most like to receive, requested an Xbox!

PLUS!  When quizzed on who women would sleep with if they had/ever had lesbian tendencies, 31% voted for Zooey Deschanel.

Guess our ladies across the pond really like the kooky chicks, huh?

More silly nonsense here.

Gordon Brown “like soil mixed with Marmite” April 22, 2010

As the general election draws ever closer, nerves are fraught.  Who are we going to vote for?  And can we truly differentiate between the policies of the main three parties?

James Wannerton can.  He’s the president of the UK Synaesthesia Association. He experiences words as tastes and textures, a neurological condition known as lexical-gustatory synaesthesia.  Which makes him a prime candidate on giving us another view on the prime candidates! (did you see what we did there?)

Here’s Wannterton’s review of ITV’s recent televised election debate:

Gordon Brown’s name tastes horrible, and his flavour was nasty – like soil mixed with Marmite. That said, he was good on education, when he tasted of peaches, sliced potato and bacon.

Nick Clegg tastes of a pickled onion yet he kept turning soft, mushy and warm. Immigration was good for him. His speech reminded me of sweets I had as a kid – fruit pastilles, Spangles and liquorice.

David Cameron’s flavour was best. He gave me a taste of ink, which I find comforting. His name tastes of macaroons, but he said sorry so frequently it covered the macaroons with condensed milk.

So there you have it.  Mmm…. ink.

If you’re anything like BWT, shopping for clothes can occasionally be a massive headache.

You need clothes for work.  Clothes for formal occasions.  Clothes for a night out.  Clothes for the gym.  And let’s not forget – clothes for for slutting it up after your moronic ex boyfriend decided to hook up with Sally the waitress.

With all of these clothing demands, it’s understandable that sometimes we get it wrong.  Television programs like “Not What To Wear” and “Gok’s Fashion Fix”, as well as oodles of “Style Disaster of the Week” magazine columns are always there to remind us of the dangers of a fashion faux pas.

But what about on the tennis court?  Surely that’s pretty safe, right?

Wrong!  Just check out these cringe-worthy (and occasionally brilliant) outfits, as selected by smashingonline.

Is it bad we rather love the leopard print…?

Bus Driver Filmed Reading On Dual Carriageway April 21, 2010

A bus driver has been suspended after a passenger filmed him apparently reading while driving along a dual carriageway in Birmingham.

The passenger, who wishes to remain anonymous, filmed the National Express West Midlands driver steering with his elbows while holding a small book.

They said they took the footage after getting on the number 61 bus at Selly Oak at 2005 BST on Monday.

National Express West Midlands said “immediate action” was taken.

In a statement, a National Express spokesman said: “Immediate action was taken to suspend the driver who will now face disciplinary action.

“It is not appropriate to predict the outcome but an incident of this type is likely to lead to a dismissal.

“Passenger safety is always our priority and it is completely unacceptable for any driver to behave in this manner.”

You can check out the video here.  It’s a little shaky at first, but it’s pretty hard to deny that the driver wasn’t reading a book.

Cheeky bugger!
